Tips n Tricks – Selecting Services to run in the farm in SharePoint 2016 IT Preview

Posted by Joy

I assume by now most of you have installed and tried SharePoint 2016 IT Preview.

Except the change in the Specify Server Role page in the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard asking us to specify the role of the server (Min-role), another change we can see in the installation and configuration of SharePoint 2016 IT Preview is, we can specify what services we want to run in the farm using Initial Farm Configuration Wizard.

As you can see below, we get a new section in Initial Farm Configuration Wizard, right below Service Applications selection, to choose what services we need to run in the farm.

Services in the farm

This reduces one of the configuration steps which we need to after running Initial Farm Configuration Wizard in the previous versions of SharePoint.


Announcements – SharePoint Server 2016 IT Preview

Posted by Joy

I have been trying the new SharePoint Server 2016 bits for few months through the TAP programs and now time has come to talk about in public.

Microsoft released SharePoint Server 2016 preview build 16.0.4316.1217 on 10th August for TAP participants and now the same build has been released to public.

It’s pointless recreating the same blog and visit Bill Baer’s post about to get more information on the SharePoint Server 2016 IT Preview.

This preview meant and focuses on infrastructure new features and enhancements and I believe that’s why they call is as IT Preview.
